Could have been just one home, but on wheels so you can take it somewhere else and it’d just be like having 2 homes, but you wouldn’t have to go through airport security screenings, or stop for toilet breaks in gas stations at freeway reststops.
Everyone should have a Mar-a-Lago.
And so it begins . . . . . . and ends . . . . . .
For me, the ideal would be a post-necessity society. After all, homes require lots of maintenance, and maintenance means lots of work.
If everybody has all they want all the time, then there will be no incentive to work (except for the fun jobs, of course), which means production will stop and now we’re back to scarcity.
Maybe this could work if we develop robots that can do all the work. Just make sure they’re incapable of resenting their status or we all die in the Robot Apocalypse. Of course, even if the robots don’t revolt, it can still lead to disaster. Read Asimov’s “The Naked Sky” and “The Robots of Dawn” for a vision of where an all leisure-via-robots society can end up.
And that, kids, is why conservatives should never be able to time travel.
With the Human made Global Warming happening I don’t think the robots will be of much use the few there are.
